Cooler Master MasterBox MB520 ARGB, Black, Mid Tower Chassis, Tempered Glass, 3x 120mm ARGB Fan, E-ATX/ATX/mATX/mITX is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent case for the price I've been using an NZXT Manta before this one. This might influence my opinion about this case. I only replaced the Manta because my Asus ROG Strix 2080 Super could not fit in it. 1.5mm more was needed, hence the new housing. So, I ordered this CM Masterbox MB520 case. I bought this one because I liked the looks of it, It had good reviews, promised a good airflow & cooling options. And for the same price I got 3 extra 120mm (ARGB) fans and one regular (unlike its sibling, the Masterbox MB 511). Which soon became my only real concern with this case. Since I do not care for the RGB part (which looks good tough), It has no value for me but it might be for you. But then again, luckily the RGBs can be switched off with the bundled controller which is a nice touch. And the controller also has very good sync support for a range different brands (Asus Aura and likes). So, as I said the fans turned out to be quite noisy and they are not PWM controlled, since they are only 3-pinned fans (CoolerMaster DF 12025). I'm using them with DC control on minimal RPM where they are fine but anything higher is more than noticeable. Again, for me. I will need replace them because of this. Otherwise the build quality is good and sturdy, the smoked front plastic cover and the side glass looks great. You get two USB 3.0, audio in and out, power and reset button on the front-top side. Illuminated power button and HDD led, both white! It is quite airy inside, plenty of room for lengthy video cards and tall CPU coolers. You also get plenty of cable holes and cut-outs all around. Has support for two water cooler radiators, one on the front (360mm or 280mm), one on top (280mm or smaller). Have removable dust filters bottom, front and top. Can house two 3.5" HDDs AND three 2.5" HDDs. The 3.5" frame is sitting under the PSU shroud and is removable by undoing 4 screws. Which you might need to do to install your larger PSU like me (Corsair 750RM). It boasts a very good airflow, it is semi open front and and fully open on the topside. My three observations are: It could use a bit more space on the backside, behind the motherboard. There's only just enough room for cable management. A case with this many fans included/supported, should come with a fan hub which this isn't (about £3 on eBay if you need one like me). The dust filters should be made from a finer mesh, only the front ones filtering dust to an acceptable standard in my opinion. In conclusion it is a great case for the asking price. Since then, I amended the above listed issues and using it with satisfaction. Without the RGB illumination it looks pretty sleek and discreet. However, if you like it the colourful way I would straight-up recommend it to you. Thank you for reading this lengthy review.
